Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Beetle Boy Hardcover by M.G. Leonard

This is a book aimed at kids in the 8-12 age range.  Darkus is a young man faced with the mysterious disappearance of his father.  Darkus has not recovered from the loss of his mother so his father's disappearance really impacts him.  

Darkus is a likeable young man who is befriended by Humphrey and Pickering his neighbors.  The three discover that the beetles infesting Humphrey and Pickering's home are anything but ordinary. 

The villain is the story is the mysterious Lucretia Cutter who evokes visions of Cruella DeVil although beetles are much harder to warm up to than Dalmatian puppies.

It is a cute mystery that seems fine for it's age group.  It moves well and should hold their interest.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
